Westerly has just accepted a cat poem!

OK, I know I've been a Very Bad Blogger. Life has been a bit tricky lately.

But I got a newsworthy email from Westerly this afternoon. They're taking "Roughly Spherical, and covered in dead leaves" for their next issue. It is, of course, about the Ragdoll in Winter.

(For any non-Aussie visitors to this blog, Westerly is an august literary journal from WA - a companion to Southerly and Meanjin, either of which I would kill to get into.)

And quite coincidentally, I asked Russ to take some updated author pics, because my old one was getting a bit distant in time - so here's a new photo of my muse and me. Felix isn't quite spherical yet, but he will be by June.

I love the longer hair - matches Felix now :-)

We're watching Buffy grow daily with some trepidation - she's going to be a BIG cat.

How does one obtain a copy of "Duties of a cat" I can't find it on the School Magazine site....

Sadly, the School Mag isn't the sort of journal that your library would have a subscription to, and it seems tricky getting single issues. I'll scan it for you,if you'd like. I can send you the Word doc easily enough, but it's better with the pics ;)

My goodness a truly lovely photograph of a Kitty. I am so glad that LJ is here for folks to write and post to. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. (I've had my cat for 10 years now, btw)

Thanks, Black Tsar. Felix is 7 now - still relatively young.
